Yes. It horrible for redmarks. Good for acne, but it makes the redmarks (for me) MUCH more inflammed and they last forever. I'm currently in the middle of an experiment where i'm using duac (BP) on one side of my face and a mild retinol (diffin) on the other. I'm breaking out worse on the side where i'm using diffirin, but my redmarks and inflammation have faded DRAMATICALLY. My acne on the side where im using bp is much better, but the redmarks are so horrible it looks like near-severe acne. :confused:

HA HA thats funny because I've done the same thing where I test one product on one side of my face and use something else for the other side. I've been alternating neutrogena acne fading mark peel and alpha hydrox oil free formula every night. Its been working real well I only use the regimen at night because my face is getting red from the glycolic acid in the oil free formula.

BP will clear yor active acne and prevent more BUT red marks from yor old acne stay there long enough to regret youve ever used BP >_> IMO

Totally agree lol.. I sometimes wish I resorted to something else.. but I know my acne would be much worse if I haven't used BP...

Hard decision

Somewhat bad acne with not a lot of redmarks.... or mild acne with tons of redmarks that never seem to go away :doh::wall:

I really dont like BP anymore .. it made my redmarks last forever! Since using Tea Tree Oil my breakouts are alot less and it is actually helping my skin .. and ZERO dryness.

I would think you would be really red because BP and glycolic peels make your face sensitive. But I would say that it would almost cancel the effect out especially depending on how much sun you get because the sun so make scars darker. But thats just my guess.

long time bp user here and it really helps with acne. I recently switched to rx products hoping to fade my red marks. I don't think there is a scientific study out there that says bp does make red marks last longer, but it seems like it does.
